Two inches of water on a workshop floor is a disaster, so the dehumidifier (plus wonderful drying weather since) have probably left me suffering above-average humidity levels ATM.

As an unfortunate aside, I stupidly threaded the wrong cable through the duct before I poured concrete, some of which must have got into the conduit somewhere locking it solidly in place. I therefore can only have only socket in the floor rather than the two I wanted.

YOU are!! Imagine how my wife feels. Imagine how my neighbours feel. Most importantly of all....imagine how I feel about this finally getting done!!

I'm about to start building a workshop so have been re-reading your thread to re-acquaint myself with a few things that I wasn't sure of. I notice in your drawing at the beginning that there is a ventilation gap above the insulation in the roof - but your actual roof doesn't have that gap. Hope you don't mind me mentioning this but it's something that I've been concerned about with my eventual roof.
I could assume that with a building that isn't occupied or used very often the likelihood of condensation problems would be minimal to non-existent - but I would be grateful if you could put my mind at rest on this point.
